Present Vision--Future Vision.
Fitterman, L. Jeffrey
This paper addresses issues of current and future technology use for and by individuals with visual impairments and blindness in Florida. Present technology applications used in vision programs in Florida are individually described, including video enlarging, speech output, large inkprint, braille print, paperless braille, and tactual output devices. The future of technology for the visually impaired is then discussed, including three promising advances: voice recognition devices, ink-jet embossers, and optical character recognition devices. The combination of these new products is seen as potentially creating a fully interactive and intelligent information system completely accessible to individuals with visual impairments. (DB)
